It’s fall in North Central PA, and that means car shows; specifically, three great car shows taking place in Muncy on September 18th! Whether you are into classic muscle cars, cool Corvettes, or iconic Ford Mustangs, there is something for everyone.

Fabulous Fall Ford Show
Murray Motors – 85 Griffith Rd, Muncy
Begins 9 a.m., awards at 2:30 p.m.
The Fabulous Fall Ford Show kicks off at 9 a.m. and is hosted by the North Central Mustang Club (NCMC) at Murray Motors. Registration runs from 9 a.m.-noon, with awards being given at 2:30 p.m. All Ford-powered vehicles are welcome, and there will be 14 show classes, including special classes for female owners, owners under 25, and a special Ford Bronco Corral. The registration fee is $15.00 per car, and the first 100 cars will receive a free gift. Everyone will have the chance to win a door prize.
Brent Peace, General Manager of Murray Motors added, “For almost 10 years Murray Motors Ford has been pleased to be involved with this Ford show. We have plenty of food vendors and a DJ it is a really enjoyable day for spectators and those to show their amazing cars and trucks. Coming into fall we always look forward to this ford show. Thank you for all those participating.”
Proceeds from this year’s show will be donated to the American Cancer Society and Geisinger Pulmonary Medicine on behalf of NCMC members who have passed. There will also be a DJ all day with door prizes in the afternoon.
The NCMC is dedicated to the preservation of the Ford Mustang — America’s first and premier “pony car.” The NCMC has been in existence since 1987 and became a charter member of the Mustang Club of America (MCA) on March 14, 1989. At that time, they were formally granted a charter by the MCA for a territory that encompasses the North Central region of Pennsylvania, a 50-mile radius around Williamsport, PA.
The NCMC is an organization of members from all walks of life who have bonded together because of their love of Fords and Mustangs. Group members are interested in Ford, Mercury, Lincoln, early models, late models, specialty cars, originals, restorations, resto-mods, and street machines. All Ford-powered vehicles are eligible, and anyone who loves cars and trucks can join the club.
The NCMC participates in many activities such as their annual car show and frequent cruises to regional destinations, car displays, trips to the local drag strip, parades, and picnics. They have also traveled together to many car shows and related activities, including the 30th, 35th, 40th, 45th, and 50th Anniversary Mustang shows, the assembly plant in Dearborn, Michigan, MCA Nationals, and Carlisle All-Ford Nationals.
Corvettes on Main Street
Main St, Muncy
Begins 10 a.m., awards at 3 p.m.
The Susquehanna Valley Corvette Club will be hosting Corvettes on Main Street in Muncy. The event will take place from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., rain or shine. Admission is free, and there will be a Kid’s Zone, food vendors, and a Chinese Auction. Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Susquehanna Valley Corvette Club Scholarship Foundation that assists Pennsylvania College of Technology students in the automotive restoration majors. Car show registration is 9 a.m.-11 a.m., with a registration fee of $20 per car.
To ensure that young people carry on their tradition and love of automobiles, the SVCC established the SVCC Scholarship for Auto Restoration with Pennsylvania College of Technology. Since the foundation began, over $100,000 has been donated to PCT students in the form of scholarships. Scholarships are awarded to first-year students who reside in Bradford, Clinton, Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Potter, Snyder, Sullivan, Tioga, or Union counties.
“The scholarship fund was created benefiting the automotive programs at the Pennsylvania College of Technology because we felt there was no better way to keep the passion and one’s love for cars alive than to support the young adults of today that have a genuine interest in the automotive field,” said Al Clapps, SVCC member. Clapps went on to say that the car show would not be possible without the hard work of all of the club volunteers and the generosity of their sponsors.
This will be the 13th All Vettes Show in downtown Muncy. The Susquehanna Valley Corvette Club (SVCC) was established in 2003 with 24 charter members, 12 of whom are still active. The club began as a group of friends who wanted to bond socially as well as build friendships and share their love of Corvettes. Over the years, the club has grown to over 139 people and includes members from all over the region. SVCC members meet once a month at various locations. They also attend car shows and take their Corvettes on day and weekend trips.

The Mopar brand has been a part of our family from the drag racing days to the 2 CDJR dealership locations we operate today.” When asked how they got involved with the Muncy Car show, Kaiser responded, “I heard that the Mopar Muscle of Central PA car club was looking for a new place to hold their growing car show, and I had to be involved. This will be our 11th year having our show together.” Steve Kaiser Jr. went on to say that they always get a great mix of vehicles from old to new. There will also be several food vendors and a DJ playing music and doing trivia. All proceeds will be donated to Camp Victory and local families in need. “It’s a great time,” said Kaiser.
